but it does remind me, you know, everybody knows mitt romney is having a rough patch as presidential candidate, but all right, all right. but a sentence i have not heard uttered anywhere is, if only donald trump had been the nominee. [laughter] because as you recall he sort of build his campaign around the idea that barack obama was born in kenya, or somewhere other than the united states. but that campaign could not take off exactly. mitt romney is therefore better or worse. and in all seriousness, when barack obama's parents got married in 1960, it wasn't in kenya. it was in hawaii. they got married in hawaii. there were people in prison in this country for racial intermarriage. that's no joke. it was illegal in 20 states in 1960, and it gives you an idea of how much the country has changed in a good way. but right after richard nixon became president, for vacancies appeared on the sprinkler. you never know how that's going to work. jimmy carter is the only president in american history to serve a full term without having a single nominee. there were no vacations while

conservative advance. i mean, if it's not impossible, looks unlikely right now. it's impossible romney could win and bring in a republican senate and maintain a republican control of the house and could expeditiously set out to replace repeal and replace obamacare and to undo some other things done by the obama administration. if that works, if it lasts, if republicans don't runway from it, and at the polls in 2014 and 2016, the voters confirm the move then liberal, i think, is in a spiritual crisis. their hold -- to the extend they have the old time religion it's because they believe they're on the right side of history. if history turns against them, then the ground of their confidence is shake. in this respect, it's not unlike communism. a different phenomena. but still, it rests on a kind of marxist confidence that in the end there will be universal revolution and a society and all will make sense. but when they began to doubt that, you know, then the foundations of marxist -- crumbled and even a structure is massive and with as many mega tons as the soviet union disappeared before
